Celtic host AC Milan in the UEFA Europa League at Celtic Park on Thursday. Celtic’s coronavirus stricken side will be determined to rectify the defeat at home to Rangers, while AC Milan aim to continue their impressive start to the season.

Celtic Form


The Scottish champions recovered from their UEFA Champions League elimination to Ferencvaros, defeating Riga and Sarajevo 1-0 away from home en route to the Europa League group stage. 

Striker Odsonne Edouard’s 70th minute goal against Sarajevo booked Celtic’s ticket into the group stage.

Celtic’s eight match unbeaten run in all competitions came to a halt at the weekend. A 2-0 loss in the Old Firm against Rangers saw the Hoops fail to register a single attempt on target.

Celtic Team News


The in-form Odsonne Edouard has scored four Scottish Premiership goals this season. He was left out of the derby due to testing positive for COVID alongside Nir Bitton and Hatem Elhamed, with the trio set to miss the match against AC Milan. 

Winger James Forrest is also out with an ankle injury. Signs are a lot more promising for striker Albian Ajeti who came off the bench against Rangers after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Midfielder and Scottish international Ryan Christie is also expected to return after being in quarantine.

AC Milan Form


Despite AC Milan’s hot start in Serie A, qualifiying for the UEFA Europa League was anything but smooth. 

A 2-0 win away to Shamrock Rovers and a 3-2 win at home to Bodo/Glimt was followed by a nail-biting 9-8 penalty shoot-out win against Rio Ave. Hakan Calhanoglu’s dramatic 120th minute equaliser saw the tie deadlocked at 2-2 after-extra-time, with Danish captain Simon Kjær scoring the decisive penalty.

Rossoneri fans have dared to dream with four consecutive wins to start the new Serie A season. 

A Zlatan Ibrahimovic brace saw AC Milan record a thrilling 2-1 win against Inter in the Derby Della Madonnina. Wins to nil against Spezia, Crotone and Fiorentina have AC Milan sitting on top of the table. 

AC Milan are unbeaten in their last 24 matches in all competitions, with their last loss against Genoa in March.

AC Milan Team News


While Ibrahimovic’s COVID recovery was timely, AC Milan still have midfielder Matteo Gabbia and centre-back Leo Duarte in quarantine. 

There is no certainty around winger Ante Rebic’s return from a shoulder dislocation. 

AC Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli made his first appearance for the season at the weekend after missing the first three weeks of the season.  

Celtic vs AC Milan Head to Head


AC Milan have won six of the 10 meetings against Celtic with three draws. These clubs last met in the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League Group stage. 

AC Milan got the better of the Hoops on both occasions – winning 2-0 at the San Siro and 3-0 at Celtic Park with Kaka, Cristian Zapata and Mario Balotelli all scoring.

Celtic vs AC Milan Odds


AC Milan are 1.85 favourites at bet365 with Celtic placed at 3.90. A draw is available at 3.45.

Celtic vs AC Milan Match Up


Expect Neil Lennon to make several changes after an uninspiring display against Rangers, where the side failed to record a shot on target.
